Heroku Error H14 (No web processes running)
Pretty sure some people encountered this problem before.
Followed all the instructions to setup node and npm. When pushing to Heroku there were no errors. But when I open the app, it shows "Application Error"
Process State Command ------- --------- ------------ main.1 up for 1m node main.js
Error H14 (No web processes running) -> GET mewtwo.herokuapp.com/ dyno= queue= wait= service= status=503 bytes=
I tried restarting the app with
heroku restart but still get the same error. Google around and there were no other solution other than
heroku restart. Anyone tried other methods ?

Ok finally figured it out myself.
Apparently in the Procfile, I declared
main: node main.js
but Heroku uses
web: node main.js
I thought the naming can be anything you want but it is actually strict, you need to use web for it to work (heroku did not emphasize this - be wary) at least for now, until I figure out why this strictness and if I can change the name.
The name of your web process must be
web, and this is the process that Heroku will always scale to '1' on initial deploy.
Other services in the Procfile can be called what you want, but you need to scale them initially (so you can have dev only processes in there if you want).
